Sylvian has masterfully combined two seemingly disparate projects to create a thoroughly engaging collaboration. Best Track "The Day The Earth Stole Heaven" indeed. Only one bum track in my opinion, and that is the monotonous "Serotonin". But why so many are still dwelling on the last release confounds me. Why the last release keeps being mentioned in many of the reviews confuses me. Why comparisons between the two are even attempted has me pondering any possible line of reasoning for doing so.

Excellent - A return to form. Best Track "The Day the Earth Stole Heaven"

Most accessible DS album in ages, without making compromises, but I still prefer Blemish (and the earlier, EP version of Librarian)
